Tulane vs Wake Forest

Wake Forest pulls away for 72-57 win over Tulane


  •  

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) Coron Williams came off the bench to score 18 points and Wake Forest pulled away from Tulane in the second half for a 72-57 victory Wednesday.

Codi Miller-McIntyre added 12 points and Tyler Cavanaugh 11 for the Demon Deacons (7-2), who led by seven points at the half only to see Tulane (4-5) rally to tie the score twice in the first five minutes of the second half.

Louis Dabney scored 29 points for the Green Wave, including a floater in the lane with 14:55 remaining that tied the game at 40-40. But Wake Forest responded with a 10-point run that pushed its lead into double figures.

Williams made a three-point play and drained a 3-pointer from the corner during the run, which put the Demon Deacons ahead 50-40 with 12:40 remaining.

Tulane could pull no closer than eight points the rest of the way, as Wake Forest's reserves outscored the Green Wave 34-5.

Jonathan Stark added 10 points for Tulane, which has now lost five straight after opening the season 4-0.

Behind Dabney, who scored 16 points in the first half, the Green Wave led twice in the opening five minutes of the game. Tulane went up by three points, 10-7, on Stark's layup with 16:33 remaining.

But Williams hit three 3-pointers over a 98-second span to ignite a 19-4 run. His first 3-pointer from the corner with 13:45 left put Wake Forest ahead, and Andre Washington's free throw with 10:09 remaining gave the Demon Deacons a 26-16 lead, their biggest of the half.

However, Wake Forest went more than five-and-a-half minutes between field goals, allowing Tulane to cut the Demon Deacons' lead to five points four times in the final five minutes of the half, the last at 32-27 on Dabney's floater with 1:05 left.

Washington then hit a pair of free throws with 34 seconds remaining to give Wake Forest a 34-27 lead at the halftime break.
